Infinite Warfare Poster (HQ) + More Modern Warfare Remaster Details

A high res poster has leaked from what appears to be a Canadian retailer. The poster outlines two editions of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Standard and Legacy. The legacy edition will include a remastered CoD 4: Modern Warfare. The poster reveals that the remastered MW will include the original campaign mode and 10 multiplayer maps – these maps are yet to be leaked/detailed.

If only 10 multiplayer maps are coming at launch for the remastered CoD 4 then its safe to assume the others will come alongside in some form of DLC package.
